Who Am I When Everything is Moving?
I am naturally an anxious person. Anxious about what is next, where to go, how to get there and everything in between. I prefer to answer all of my questions in the order I know will work out.
You notice I use “ I” a lot.
Last year taught me NOT to lean to my own understanding. It is not an “I” thing but a faith thing. There came a point in my life last year that I needed to slow DOWN. Things where beyond my control and I just did not know how I was going to conquer the situation that I was in. People tried to hold me back, some told me I was not going to make it through. One day I literally just stopped. I stopped listening to negativity, stopped listening to lies, I – just - did - not - care. So I told myself “faith it Out” – I am going work hard, push harder and then stand in agreeance for God to work his miracle.
Faith is a doing word. Without action all we have is belief, not faith. The amount of faith we have is determined by the amount of confidence we have in what we believe combined with the type and intensity of action we take as a result.
“And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.” (Hebrews 11:6).
……. Few months’ later doors from EVERY direction began to open up, opportunities I never knew existed began to open up in my life. AMAZING!!!!!
